Shadows of a Stranger is another independent project that has caught our eye recently. However, it’s not just your standard low-budget, horror flick. True it is low-budget, and it is horror-ish (labelled a psychological thriller) But there are a number fo differences that seperate it from the rest.
First off is the fact that it’s British (We rarely seem to get British Horrors nowadays so that’s always a plus)
There’s also the fact that, despite their low budget, they still managed to attract big names to their project. The likes of Colin Baker (Doctor Who) and Colin McFarlane (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Cube) to name a few…
Well that’s all well and good I hear you say, but there are still quite a few indie flicks out there that have been able to accomplish the same feat… Well that may be so, but were they filmed entirely on blue screen? No? Well Shadows of a Stranger is!
Check out this trailer and see for yourself!
Looks great right? To quote their Facebook page: An original tale that ‘re-samples’ Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in a dark melange of ‘ghostly’ visitations, psychic travelling, and the search for one’s atrophied humanity. Re-imagined in a bleak, comic book-esque setting, the film also takes inspiration from Robert Rodriguez / Frank Miller’s Sin City, and David Fincher’s Se7en.
Well here’s the second cryptic trailer that was recently released.
I’m sure you’ll agree the movie looks like it’s going to be a huge success. But it will only thrive if YOU support it.
As always, spread the word and let’s make this great film known as far as possible!
